I'm NOT on a diet!
Sunday, December 11, 2016      4 comments

No, this isn't a diet. I eat in a very low carb/ketogenic way and its not a diet. This is the lifestyle that I have chosen for better health. I enjoy eating this way and I don't feel deprived (sometimes depraved, but not deprived). I have bo... Read more
Habit or Hunger?

I'm working on doing some fasting a few times a week and have arrived at 23 hour fast with a 1 hour feasting period. Ultimately I would like to do this more frequently and begin the fast earlier in the day (finish eating by about 3-4, breaking ... Read more

Just want to say thanks to my team members! You guys give lots of encouragement and support just when I need it. Those times when I might be a bit low or just uninspired, all I need to do is stop and read what you are doing and share in your ... Read more

On the 11th of April I will have been back on my journey for a healthier lifestyle, for 3 months. I'm feeling very good about the progress. I'll be close (if not there) to a 20 lbs loss in that time. At times I've felt that was slow. Like e... Read more

I hear these words so often here that I just have to comment. Not sure what I have to say but it does seem that we expect an awful lot of our bodies to expect them to drop weight that has often taken us years to put on. We want it OFF and we w... Read more

I can't remember the last time I blogged. Its been a while. Getting used to the glipizide and avoiding all starches for the most part. Will have occasional bread as sandwich or with a dinner out, but do limit it greatly. Just not worth it. ... Read more

So, I wasn't too happy with my morning glucose numbers. I guess I had gotten a bit lax in carb counting, and my doc took me off Januvia due to the risks associated with it. My numbers increased a bit (carb creep?) so I talked to her about add... Read more

Just keeping one foot in front of another and keeping on. Diabetes isn't something that gives one a break...EVER. Its a constant awareness of diet and monitoring blood glucose that will keep the hounds (high sugars) away.. Even with the m... Read more

My poor jaw/face is so swollen its painful. Really didn't expect so much swelling with a single extraction. Ah well. Still on pain meds and eating what I can. BG is doing well despite the pain levels, so that is good. I'm not eating a whole... Read more
Molar extraction...
Friday, March 08, 2013      1 comments

My jaw is so, so sore/tender. The doctor used a light glucose drip. He was SURE it wouldn't raise my bs levels...wrong. I didn't get to a danger zone, but got just under 140 so wasn't too happy. I had expressed that I wasn't thrilled about it... Read more
Oral surgeon on the horizon............
Wednesday, March 06, 2013      1 comments

The pain in my jaw/ear is from a molar/crown that got a cavity underneath. For some reason it wasn't being picked up by my regular dentist. Went back to put a new crown on it and the endodontist found it. Now to an oral surgeon for extraction... Read more
I hate pain~~
Sunday, March 03, 2013      2 comments

Tooth ache or ear ache. Not sure which, but it kept me awake most of the night--even with prescription pain killer. Blood sugars are a bit elevated and I wondered why, but now think whatever it is, is causing it. I've been enjoying a bit of r... Read more

Lost a dear friend today to that nasty disease Cancer. He had been ill with pneumonia and was rushed to ICU today. His wife called me to let me know he was failing about an hour ago and just found out now that he died. So fast. I'm devastate... Read more
No apparent changes....but........
Thursday, February 14, 2013      3 comments

With no *apparent* changes in eating practices, I've put on a couple of pounds that seems to be sticking around. Sigh. Its been a crazy couple of months emotionally so perhaps its just a stress response. Needless to say, its time to bump up ... Read more
